Hi, I am having trouble displaying Apple emoji's in my Rise Player.  I have a feed coming in from Twitter and the tweets only show replacement emoji's and placeholder squares.  Does anybody know an extension or workaround to get the actual Apple emoji's to show?  Otherwise the feed looks a bit fake to viewer. 

If this is not possible, can somebody recommend a simple html display app that can show in portrait orientation and have all the emojis available? I am a beginner at all this and would appreciate your wisdom. Much appreciated.

I have added an emoji extension that allows me to see Apple emoji's in my ASUS Chromebox Chrom browser.  Somehow in the actual Rise Player -- the emojis still appear as stock non-OSX emoji's.  Is there something I can do to get the extension to apply?  Can Rise integrate this ASAP -- seems super simple.

I think Ashleigh sent through an initial reply via the chat regarding the emojis and Rise Player and Chrome extension.

Some suggestions to try out although they are not real time feed examples..

Embedding a tweet via the HTML Widget
In the Twitter Developer forums they have provided an example way of embedding a Twitter feed containing emojis at https://twittercommunity.com/t/emoji-... Please note that this is only embedding via HTML and using only one Tweet.

Embedding a Story via the HTML widget
You can also use the HTML widget to embed a Storify containing the tweet/s. And then within it, see if it's possible to add a refresh script so that you can change the Storify itself with new tweets and have the updates appear on a Display. Emojis appear in Storify.

For the two options above, I've tried them out (with exception to the refresh script for Storify) and can see emojis.

Would be interesting to see if anyone else in the Community has tried out something similar.
